Anyone Pg with pre-existing back condition?

Hi ladies. My DH and I have officially started TTC. Question, though--I have a lower lumbar back injury (herniated disc) and was wondering if anyone out there had a similar problem before conceiving, and if so, how is it affecting your pregnancy? I've heard that back pain is pretty common (and painful) during pregnancy--does having the pre-existing problem make it worse? Does it affect you during the whole pregnancy or from a certain point onward? Any insight would help me greatly. Thank you so much!

Re: Anyone Pg with pre-existing back condition?

I don't have back problems, but I do have a problem with my tailbone. I cracked it when I was younger and it still bothers me now. I had back and tailbone pain through my entire pregnancy. Also, through labor that is where I felt all the pain. The best solution I found was just to get up and slowly walk around. It helped alot.

Scoliosis and a floating verbrae (Ok I know that's not the correct term)

I just made sure my OB was aware of the issues, actually requested a C-section cause I was SO afraid of screwing my back up with all the pushing....she wouldn't do that but made notes of it in my chart and promised I wouldn't be allowed to labor as long as 'normal' patients before a C-section. I went vaginally, (Chart allowed for 6 hours of labor....I delivered my DD after 5 1/2 hours of labor!!!!!) and marched my butt into the chiropractor ASAP....

I had to visit my chiropractor more often during the pregnancy and take back rubs whenever I could LOL!
